Description

Me n Len is a warm and humourously nostalgic look back at life in the backwoods of Ontario in the "good old days." The setting is the rural area of eastern Haliburton, Ontario, in the decades before the chainsaw and the outboard motor became the common sounds in this beautiful region of central Canada.
The main character is a grizzled and lovable 82-year-old trapper and woodsman named Len who takes the reader through the adventures in his memory to meet the people of his past. The stories he tells and the way he tells them are often funny, sometimes poignant, but always filled with an unforgettable down-to-earth philosophy.
